Peril in the Palace takes Beth and Patrick to China where they meet Marco Polo. Not our favorite Imagination Station book but it was a fun adventure and we look forward to continue to read the series.

Peril in the Palace is another great book in the Imagination Station series. This time Patrick, Beth, and Mr. Whittaker are whisked to China to help Albert find a golden tablet while battling mishaps, frightening creatures, and people who want to stop them. They also meet important people like Marco Polo, the Chinese Emperor of the time period, and the Mongols. This was a great book for kids and will take them on an adventure while teaching them important Christian truths.

This is a good book for kids who like Ancient China. In this book Patrick and Beth go to China in the 13th century looking for the golden tablet of Kublai Khan. They are rescued from Mongol warriors by Marco Polo. He takes them to see Kublai Khan and when Patrick shows him a windup toy rooster he locks them in prison because he thinks they have power over an evil bird spirit. While Patrick and Beth say farewell to Marco Polo, a girl named Beki slips into the prison cell with them and gives them a golden tablet. They then escape with nails that Mr. Whittaker gave them. Two giant eagles grab them and carry them to their nest. A knight comes to rescue them long enough for them to get into the Imagination Station. They are now in a cave in an unknown time period. My favorite part is where Beth uncovers the shamans tricks. This is a good book for kids ages 8-11.

"Peril in the Palace" grabbed our interest from the first and it's full of great cliff-hangers. I love History as much as I love books, and my kids love History, too. I've been reading them great historical non-fiction (try David Adler's picture book series) and great historical fiction since they were tiny. No dry Ferris Bueller-style History lessons for us!
"Peril in the Palace" takes place in 13th century China and is actually the 3rd book in the Imagination Station series from Focus on the Family. This book is about real-life explorer Marco Polo and Chinese emperor Kublai Khan. The cover itself gives an accurate description of the book: 2 kids, Beth and Patrick, end up going back to around AD1200 and getting mixed up in a perilous adventure. "Peril in the Palace" delves into the Mongol history of China, the golden tablet of Kublai Khan and so much more... but you'll have to read it to find out the "more"!
This series is great, exciting fiction that's sure to peak your kids' interest in History! Highly recommend!

Peril in the Palace is the third in the Imagination Station Series. This is a great series for kids ages 7 and up. They are a great alternative to the Magic Tree House books. I love that we can do a whole study off of them in school. My son recently read this book and here is his synopsis.
.Patrick and Beth meet Mr. Whitaker in the workshop at Whit's End. Mr. Whitaker tells them they have another adventure to do. They get into the Imagination Station and push the red button. They find themselves in China. They turn around and see a bunch of horses riding toward them. The men see them and make the horses run faster. They pick up Beth and Patrick. They go on a long ride to the Wall of China. They go to the other side of the Wall of China. Then they meet Marco Pollo. Marco Pollo bring Patrick and Beth to his tent. Marco Pollo calls his Grandpa and Father. They tell them they have to go to the Emperor. They bow to him. The Emperor says, "arise.: Marco Pollo, his Father and Grandpa, and Patrick and Beth give the Emperor presents. A bunch of men come out that the Emperor calls "lambs." Then the lambs put a pitcher on a stool, the men raise their hands, the pitchers goes up in the air. Then they put a cup on the stool and the pitcher pours wine in the cup. Beth tells Patrick, "I think they are using magnets under their sleeves." Then the Emperor says, "What are magnets?" The lambs pulled up their sleeves. Patrick and Beth saw magnets on their arms. The lambs put Patrick and Beth in a locked room. The young woman says she is a Princess. Patrick and Beth looked in a bag that Mr. Whitaker gave them. In the bag there was a present. They asked the Princess if she could read it because it was in a different language. She could. She opens it and sees a Bible. The Princess says, "It's written my language." (the Bible) Patrick and Beth escape. They see a humongous bird, bigger than them. Then the humongous birds pick them up and bring them to their nest on a cliff called The Rocks. They see a man running toward them. The baby birds in the nest try to bite Patrick and Beth but the man hurts the baby birds before they bite them. Then Beth and Patrick see the Imagination Station and go back to Whit's End.
This book prompted many questions about the Great Wall. We looked up pictures and learned a little bit about it. I love how naturally learning can come when surrounded with good books to feed the mind. We highly recommend this book and the whole series.
